Mi sento il cor traffigere
Language: Italian (Italiano)
Mi sento il cor trafiggere,
presso a morir son io,
e non conosco, o dio,
chi mi traffige il cor.
Non so dove mi volgere,
in vano i numi invoco,
e il duol a poco
degenera in furor!

I feel my heart pierced
Language: English after the Italian (Italiano)
I feel my heart pierced,
I am near to death,
and I do not know, oh god,
who has pierced my heart.
I know not which way to turn,
in vain I call upon the heavens,
and my pain
will soon turn to madness!
